Earning more money with a list…

Posted on Jan 20 2009

Are you building a mailing list from your lenses?

When someone lands on your lens, how many chances of a sale do you get?

Mostly the answer will be… one.

If you get the person to look at a couple of your lenses then your chance of a sale doubles and triples.

But what if your lens visitors said to you ‘Hey! I like your style! Here, take my email address and send me cool stuff!’

If you could get your lens visitors to opt in to your newsletter or niche list then you would really start to turn yourself into a savvy niche marketer.

You can see this in action on many of my lenses.

I actually have one single lens that I have used to build a mailing list of over 4000 (FOUR THOUSAND!!) people, all interested in the same thing.

Now when I make a lens about that same topic… I just send them all a quick email letting them know. And voila. Instant audience. Instant income from any sales.

Are you wasting the chance to build an email list asset from your lenses?

I use an autoresponder company called Aweber. I highly recommend them, and they are the best at what they do.

And I’ve also put together a step by step guide on how to get live opt in forms onto your lenses which you can get from

If you are missing out on extra visitors and extra income from having your own fanbase, this week can be the time you change all that.

P.S. there are companies like aweber which offer a free service, but it is most often a case of ‘You get what you pay for’. But for someone just starting out the free option at might be enough.

    I have your guide on integrating A. Weber with Squidoo but until I read this post I never, never realized how powerful the concept actually is. Once again, Lewis comes up with a killer idea and show the world how to make it work! Thank you!

    Hi Lewis,thank you for re-awakening my interest in squidoo! I haven’t been spending much time there since the ban on using i-frames to insert opt-in forms.
    I purchased your guide recently and it’s the most useful guide/report I’ve read in a long time.
    I have integrated your instructions with an autoresponder called Wizard Responder which, after testing for a couple of months, does the same job as Aweber at less than half the price! I’m now in the process of transferring my lists from Aweber to Wizard Responder.
    List building is very important if you want to be successful at Internet Marketing and your guide means that it is now possible for Squidoo-ers to have a taste of that success again!

    Thanks again,

    Have an awesome day!
